Check Out My Guest Posts on Learn HTML With Song

By on Oct 21, 2014 in San Francisco, Tech, Writers |

A cool new site just launched all about producing educational coding music videos. The idea is that if you’re going to get a catchy song stuck in your head, why not have those lyrics teach you HTML, the language of the web? It’s called Learn HTML With Song, and it’s made by a San Francisco coder, Diane Presler, with more than 20 years experience as an HTML teacher. Here’s an example of one of their videos. Learning the HTML IMG Tag With Claude Parnell In addition to videos, Learn HTML With Song has seven beginner HTML lessons already since their launch this month, and they’re releasing new ones every week. Unlike most dry coding sites, every lesson is filled with fun images and it’s written in a clear conversational tone that’s easy to understand. The lessons are starting from scratch so you don’t have to know a thing about coding to get...

How to Access the Log File of Your Blog

By on Feb 17, 2012 in All, Tech |

Are you a blogger? If you are, you may be interested in the post I wrote today for 40tech.com on how to access your site’s log file. You can see who’s looking at your site, and what they’re reading, all in real time. You can also check out your error log to figure out why something on your site isn’t working. It’s pretty nifty, and it’s a good foray into accessing your site directly via the command line. Here’s the article on 40Tech: How to See What’s Happening On Your Site in Real-time Using Your Log File Also, I found a link that explains how to read the contents of the Log file. Some of it seemed obvious to me, like the numbers are the IP of the person checking out your site and the GET: postname.html is the page they’re looking at.

We Don’t Need Facebook

Facebook has given privacy a kick in the groin. If this is news to you, you should probably check out: Facebook’s Gone Rogue; It’s Time for an Open Alternative [Wired] or Top Ten Reasons You Should Quit Facebook [Gizmodo] or Facebook Further Reduces Your Control Over Personal Information [EFF]. FB Privacy Policy: Longer Than the Constitution Those who’ve been watching the plucky start-up were already aware that Facebook is mired in accusations that it was founded by a crook and funded by a nut and some gooks. Into this fray comes Facebook’s controversy over their privacy settings. It used to be that Facebook provided a space that was just for friends and family. “Just” as in “only.” As in, not public. The new privacy settings even led to a movement last month to have a “Quit Facebook Day.” Even if you manage to tackle...
